Anthony Joshua Will Not Take Knee In Fight Against Kubrat Pulev Tonight

Anthony Joshua has said that he won’t Take Knee Against Kubrat Pulev On Saturday Night Fight.


NewsOnline Nigeria reports that World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Anthony Joshua has given reasons why he won’t take the knee when he faces Kubrat Pulev tonight.


Taking the knee before sporting games became a thing in England since the death of George Floyd in America.


The act is done to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.


However, Anthony Joshua said that he doesn’t need to perform the act at Wembley on Saturday because he’s already doing other things to the effect.


“No, I won’t take the knee,” the 31-year-old said.


“I’m trying to do more tangible things. What we’re trying to do is create a union to support British culture, that’s important to showcase people from the Afro-Caribbean community as valuable members of British society.


“I think that’s more important, that’s what we’re working on at the minute with different athletes, different people, different places.


“Taking a knee is important, 100 per cent but for me, personally, I’m doing something different this time around.”
